Compare to what came off. The pin needs to be the proper distance from the spring mounts for the springs to fit. Note they could be turned around, front to back. The pin isn't necessarily centered...

Typically you set the idle mixture to "best lean idle." Make sure both screws are the same, and then turn them both in 1/4 turn at a time. In is lean, out is rich. If nothing else is broken (ie power...
